The launch was officiated by Local Government Development Minister Nga Kor Ming and Tesla regional director Isabel Fan.
“Tesla’s [venture] into Malaysia is a vote of confidence for us (Malaysia) which is poised to be the gateway in Southeast Asia.
“We welcome all electric car manufacturers including Tesla to come to Malaysia to not only set up their showrooms but also start their manufacturing plant here.”
With the launch of the updated Model 3, Tesla's regional director said the company plans to install more Supercharger stations in Malaysia. At the moment, there are already two open, located in Pavillion Kuala Lumpur and Sunway Big Box, Johor.
“We will have more stations. Our plan is to connect the country, connect the region, and make cross-border travel such as from Singapore to Malaysia easy,” said Fan.
The company plans to install Supercharger stations in 12 different locations across the country. Five of them will be installed in Klang Valley, two in the northern region of Peninsular Malaysia, and two in the southern region.
